    Kalu reminds me of Kalua, sorry.
    Your boys names are fine and are not out there really. I have a Taj and a Chase at work and I know people on here before have said they are using or have used Malakai

    Honestly? I think it's strange when names aren't spelt their original way.

    Eg: Malachi and Bluebell is how you spell those names. Don't make it hard on your kid by messing with them.

    That aside, I don't have any major issues with the names.

    Having a strange or different name makes you individual, your name and what it's been previously related to or what it sounds like or reminds someone of is often forgotten once the child is right there in front of them.

    I quite like Kalu for a girl. And spelling etc don't worry about. Even people with the simplest names have to spell them out on a daily basis!

    Lovely names

    I know a kalu, not sure how it's spelt. It's lovely!

    ETA I generally prefer traditional names and spelling.

    I like Kalu. But it does make me think of alcohol.

    I think Chase for a boy (well either or) only because I am not find on the other two names.

    I think if you change the spelling of Kalu then there might be less kahlua likenings. I always imagined it with a c like Carloo.
